Default Bukowski/Algren Recommendations

Can anyone here recommend some works similar to Charles Bukowski or Nelson Algren? I've read The Neon Wilderness by Algren and the Henry Chinaski series of books by Bukowski. I like the seedy, gritty, warts and all feel of those books and wondered if anyone knew of similar authors or books. Thanks.

I'm a huge Bukowski fan...he was a huge admirer of Hemingway and John Fante...I would also highly recommend Celine, who is also a character in Hank's last book 'Pulp'.
